GRAFTON – The 7th Annual Burning Porcupine Festival will be held August 4 – 10 at the Hoyt Farm at 31 Hoyt Rd in Grafton.
With a population of only 1340 as of the 2010 census, this tiny rural community has the highest concentration of liberty activists of any town in New Hampshire, according to Free State Project participant and town resident Jeremy Olson. According to a recent article on NPR, “Free Staters say Grafton should withdraw from the school district, cut the $1 million budget by 30 percent over three years, and carve Grafton out as a “U.N.-free zone.””
Working with last year’s Grafton Liberty Love Fest organizers, Burning Porcupine is expanding this year to include live music and more vendors. Some Grafton liberty folk will be holding tours of the town and its liberty “hotspots”, showing available real estate and rentals to prospective liberty movers.
The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance will have a booth where new members can sign up and get their own paper copies of the 2014 Liberty Rating, the 2014 Gold Standards, and more.
Attendees can camp at Hoyt Farm at no charge (although donations are appreciated). Bring a tent or park your RV. Camping is “semi-dry” camping; there are outdoor bathrooms, showers, and a potable water spigot on the premises; however no electricity or water/sewer hookups are available for campers. A map and directions are available at www.burningporcupine.org.
